He was born in the city of Córdoba (Argentina) and as a young man he trained himself in a self-taught way, starting to explore several techniques that had to do with drawing.
He began to be interested in realism from a very early age and particularly in surrealism until he entered the Figueroa Alcorta School of Fine Arts where he studied for a Higher Diploma in Engraving.
Among the work of this multifaceted artist we can find murals made in ceramics, engravings, sculptures, ink drawings, all made in different supports and using diverse materials and techniques, giving his work a very particular vision of his land and his voices that he has been exhibiting since 1980 in various national and international shows.
